piece in the "washington post" today. how america became a secular socialist machine. >> i think that is what the country is. the country is still a center right majority. if you look at washington, you talked about that a second ago, with harry reid. the health bill wasn't the first time reid decided to be totally partisan. the stimulus was. the reason i call it a machine, if you can get $787 billion out of congress, with no elected official having read the bill, that's not representative democracy. that's a machine. it's like chicago. when you watch how reid operates, anytime he has a choice between being left wing machine boss or participated in government, he picks being the left wing machine boss. secular and socialist are the other two words. i wrote in this part in reaction to colleague of mine who seemed surprise we used the word. if you look at the judges that obama is nominating, they tend to be rigid, anti-religious secularists. if you look at obama's policies we currently own most of general motors and own most of chrysler. aig is deeply in debt to the government. the
think in 2010 america to call someone a racist is probably one of the worst things that you possibly can do. so either they need to have some very strong proof of racial motivation or this is an irresponsible insult that's actually slander. i think it's beyond calling wolf now on this issue. either you have proof or you don't. i was there sean in washington, d.c., 30,000 freedom-loving patriots showed up because they didn't like the health care bill. they were -- there were doctors, internists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, business owners, judges, 75-year-old apolitical women. these people weren't there for any form of racial motivation. they don't like redistribution of wealth. that's what this is about. today if you oppose redistribution of wealth apparently, in some people's eyes you are racist. >> sean: i released a book tuesday the subtitle, defeating obama's radical agenda. a reporter is interviewing me, asking me are you inciting violence somehow against democratic officials? i'm thinking, no, i'mz0ñ saying at the ballot box we want to defeat the president's agenda. interestingly
as we were together on a bipartisan basis. to craft a realization designed to get america's lowest performing schools back on track. i will turn to my very capable partner in this perhapfor his og statement. >> thank you, mr. chairman, and thank you for your diligent work in moving this along on fixing "no child left behind." it is an old version and i'm sure we will have a new version here before long. we for to created thea diverse witness list and i look for to learning more from each of you this afternoon. the knowledge of practice to bring to the table will help us as we move forward to develop legislation that builds upon what we have learned from "no child left behind" and fixes what has not been working. two issues i will focus on as we read author is a -- we authorize this. first, the man didn't turn around models could have on a roll and frontier schools and school districts. the second is the research base used to determine whether these models have proven to be effective at turning around a performing schools. roll and frontier schools and school districts are unique an

rights powder keg ready to ignite all across america. >> i have instructed members of my administration to closely monitor the situation and exam the civil rights and implications of this legislation. but if we continue to fail to act at a federal level, we will continue to see misguided efforts opening up around the country. >> you can't deny it. immigration legislation has been a political land mine for politicians for years. >> i just want to make sure, do you, new york senator, support the new york governor's plan to give illegal immigrants a driver's license? you told the new hampshire paper is made a lot of sense. can you support his plan? >> you know, tim, this is where everybody plays gotchya. we have failed and george bush has failed. do i think this is the best thing for any governor to do? no. >> nobody has had the right answer for this for a long time. president obama made a promise to move on immigration reform. now he's got to live up to the promise. numbers clearly show that hispanics are the fastest growing ethnic group in the united states. they make up 46% of our popul
. this is not the sort of stuff that will fly with most americans out there. 20% of america, maybe half the republican party, perhaps. but not most americans. this isn't going to get job done in 2012 that's for sure. >> ron, i think once you investigate it for anti-americanism i think that you might be on her list. here's michele bachmann critiquing president obama today on his nuclear policy. i'm confounded about why she's upset by this nuclear policy, since ronald reagan was one of the great ideologist about getting rid of nuclear weapons in this war. let's listen to michele bachmann. >> we found out that the president said that he was going to change the united states' strategy on dealing with nuclear weaponry. did this shock anyone? so if, in fact, there is a nation who is compliant with all the rules ahead of time and they've complied with the united nations on nuclear proliferation, if they fire against the united states a biological weapon, a chemical weapon, or maybe a cyber attack, then we're not going to be firing back with nuclear weapons. >> i don't get that. i guess i'm waiting for the ap

states of america can do. and we are not going to impose any kind of peace upon palestine and israel and that is that. it was a surprising, considering what we've been reading, chris, about the possibility of the united states might lay out what we think are the basic outlines of a just and lasting peace. my guess today would be we're not going to do it. >> the question i guess is for the israelis to answer. they have to answer it in the first instance before we get to it. we could suggest an alternative over there. mr. mayor, it seems to me this is the challenge. israel has to unite the moderate arab world such as it is. jordan, the saudis, the egypt n egyptians, all the emirates. it has to get them on their side against iran in terms of iran's nuclear threat. they can't do that step unless they can find something over palestine, right? so the irony is they may have to give something in terms of the middle east situation in order to build the kind of armada, if you will, diplomatic armada they need to shut down the iranian nuclear threat. do you think that's a tradeoff they're thin
for america. eric, good to have you on tonight. >> thanks for having me. >> i guess in all of my years of radio and television i've never seen an anchor of this stature in the industry make up something to cover his backside for a lie. is this an absolute test case plus "a"-positive story? >> look, you know, you might be able to compare his efforts to cover up the lie with, you know, with other folks at fox news, ed. that would be the only possible comparison. bill o'reilly even he kind of stands alone. just to show you how bad it is, you know, we did a little more digging and found out two days before -- two days before the final passage of the final bill, bill hemmer was pushing the same lie on fox news. and just this last saturday almost a month after the health care bill was signed into law we had folks on fox business network pushing the same lie. so it's beyond open and shut case. the takeaway here about bill o'reilly is, you know, he's tried to paint himself this year as kind of the reasonable voice and reasonable man. the truth is he's just the same old bill. >> well, you know,
